Children played the violin in the lobby of the Blaisdell Concert Hall on Sunday.
David and I were at the Blaisdell Concert Hall to hear a live performance of the Brahms’ Double Concerto for Violin and Cello with Iggy Jang on the violin and Mark Votapek on the cello. This was the first time we saw and heard it live. It was an excellent performance, well deserving of the standing ovation from the audience.
Before the concert, I bought a bag of roasted macadamia nuts from this stand outside the concert hall:
The macadamia nuts were warm from the roaster:
After the concert, we drove to Panda Express and bought a Chinese dinner to eat at home. We were thrilled to watch our favorite quarterback, Tom Brady, and the New England Patriots beat the Atlanta Falcons in Super Bowl 51. We watched the recording on our TV:
New England was behind 21-3 at half time, so we assumed they would lose. Isn’t it amazing that people can come from behind and win? Where there’s a will, there’s a way. Determination will overcome any obstacle.
